The Kaulbachstraße is about 1.45 km Munich -way street with changing the direction of travel. It leads from Schönfeldstrasse in Maxvorstadt north to Maria-Josepha-Strasse in Schwabing . It runs parallel to Ludwigstrasse / Leopoldstrasse or Koeniginstrasse west of the English Garden .


The Bavarian Supreme Audit Office (9), the Institut français Munich (formerly Palais Seyssel d'Aix ) (13), the Kaulbach Villa (15) with the historical college , the Orff Center (16), the university are located on it for Philosophy Munich (31a) and the listed building on Kaulbachstrasse 44 .

The street is listed as a place on the Maxvorstadt cultural history trail .


As early as 1789, after the official announcement of the project planning for the English Garden, the area west of the English Garden was developed as a Schönfeld suburb with a generous land allocation. So along the Koeniginstrasse, right on the edge of the English Garden, driveways were created to reach the future building plots. According to Karl von Fischer's general building plan, these newly designed districts were carried out under the direction of Friedrich Ludwig Sckell . One of these paths was named Gartenstraße . This was divided into two sections: on the one hand Obere Gartenstrasse, which extended to Veterinärstrasse (the border between Maxvorstadt and Schwabing), and on the other hand Untere Gartenstrasse, which stretched from Veterinärstrasse to Ohmstrasse. Ohmstrasse was already outside the state capital in Schwabing, which was still independent at the time. In the autumn of 1886 the ministry decided that the street should be uniformly named Kaulbachstraße . In the course of this name assignment, a path that was already known as Kaulbachstraße in 1881 was renamed Neureutherstraße in 1887 , and the Obere- and Untere Gartenstraße were renamed Kaulbachstraße . By 1891, Kaulbachstrasse ended at Kisskaltplatz, previously known as Kaulbachplatz since 1930 . It was not until the end of 1949 that Kaulbachstrasse was extended to Nikolaiplatz and Maria-Josepha-Strasse; it received its current total length. This renewed extension of the street was only possible due to the residential buildings that were badly destroyed in the Second World War and the resulting vacant areas.

It is named after the painter Wilhelm von Kaulbach , who lived in Munich from 1826 onwards . The University of Television and Film Munich and the International Youth Library used to be located at Kaulbachstrasse 16 before the building became the Carl Orff Center. The actress Erna Morena lived in Kaulbachstrasse 35 from 1955 , and the writer Ricarda Huch in the accompanying garden building from 1911–1927 . Fanny zu Reventlow lived with Bohdan von Suchocki and Franz Hessel in the house on Kaulbachstrasse 63 for a few years . The AFN Munich was housed in the Kaulbach Villa until 1962 .
